Both of my boys were born close to Christmas and my family would ask me what to get them for gifts. Well, since they were newborns, I felt that they didn't need gifts. They were too little to play with anything and I already had clothes and baby stuff. So, I was thinking about this pattern and how sweet of a gift this would make for a new baby. It's a crochet angel, and wouldn't it be a sweet gift to personalize this angel for a newborn as a Christmas tree ornament? Now I just need to REMIND myself of this idea when there is a new baby in our family!
You could add a little message attached to the angel such as: "I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and bring you to the place I have prepared" Exodus 23:20 NIV
